public safety, served a fairly strong public safety function. we believe those entities could use it on a daily basis as well. obviously, in an emergency -- in an earthquake or a disaster -- everybody becomes an emergency services worker. when something big hits, obviously, i think any city employee would be eligible to use the system. and we are actually working to expand the definition even more to allow public works -- there are a variety of functions that the city performs that i would consider public safety functions. we are just trying to expand the definition as broadly as possible. on the question of devices -- absolutely. both the arra and the fcc are setting specific standards and requirements for these networks. we are negotiating to make sure we have clear language in our agreement with motorola. motorola has to ensure that any device that is certified is compliant by the fcc or the national standards agency in washington will operate to it's full functionality on the network. we believe that is a key component, to develop a key market for devices and hopefully drive d

was as great a man as i have ever seen. the historical weight of this long overdue monument reminds us that we must be lifters' now. in the 1960's as today, divisiveness was based on fear and prejudice and misinformation. now with the cost and 24 hour news cycle, the power of misinformation has increased. we must remind ourselves that intelligence drums in ignorance every time -- trumps ignorance every time. when given the facts, people make good decisions. that leads to a problem dr. king faced 50 years ago, one that is worse today and that is the court for visitation, the politicization and the trivialization of the news. dr. king once spoke candidly with me about the news coverage of the civil rights movement. nationwide especially in cities like jackson. there was a little news coverage at all anywhere. he was also concerned that southern affiliate's stations would persuade the networks to tone down if not eliminate coverage that went out to the rest of the country. at the time, frankly, i did not feel his concerns were warranted. the than owners of my network in my bosses in new york work

[ applause ] >> the president: and then when even after the civil rights act and the voting rights act passed, african-americans still found themselves trapped in pockets ofç poverty across the country. dr. king didn't say those laws were a failure. he didn't say this is too hard. he didn't say let's settle for what we got and go home. instead, he said, let's take those victories and broaden our mission to achieve not just civil and political equality, but also economic justice. let's fight for a living wage and better school
have a dream" speech which so many of us remember. as i was growing up, i watched the riots unfold here in washington when he was shot and how much turmoil there was right here in this city. remember, my mother rushed me out of the city to get me away from the riots that unfolded right there as people tried to grapple with the fact that they had lost the legacy and the life of dr. martin luther king jr. i'll tell you, one of the things that comes to mind right now is what he said during that famous i i have a dream" speech, he said i have a dream that my four children, one day my four children will be able to have friends and who will judge them not for the color of their skin but the content of their character. that resonates with me even today with children of my own and seeing how they embrace people from a multitude of lifestyles and races and ethnicities and it just shows you that dream is coming to fruition. but bernice king has more to say about that and what her father's legacy means for her and the world. >> this is a day that all americans can be proud of. may i remind you th
